Workshop Overview

Working with a unique recycled paper clay that attaches itself to almost anything and does not need firing. The clay can be painted, added to other things, encaustisized or simply drawn on, to give a few examples.  Students will create a sculpture that has a fine porcelain feel and expresses their unique creative vision through form. Participants are welcome to bring in their own driftwood, glass, shells or stones to incorporate into the works.  Each student will not only leave with at least one finished piece but will gain the confidence to continue to risk creating further as all art demands one allows themselves to move to places they have not traveled to before.
